Steve, Daniels follows a periodisation approach so as Jools says you won't really be able to see if his method works for you in that time frame as you won't be able to do all the different phases. That said it's defo worth doing a few of his sessions over the next few weeks as they are pretty testing and good fun. 

I followed daniels for for my half pb in 2012 but that was for a good 13/14 weeks I think. Thought it was a great schedule although pushed me to the brink a few times in terms of injuries.

Bizarre. Really is.

No. Combination of injury not properly shifted, slow recovery from Edinburgh and massive post smidgen-PB blues left me wondering what's the point! Sure I'll be reet though - seeing those great performances today has really inspired me that I just need to get the shoes back on and be sensible. London 2015 2:24 is my target. Base starts tomorrow.

Looks like you're in fairly fine fettle mate, any races coming up?

Yes, pretty good from Marigold wasn't it?!?! Awesome fella, so pleased for you. I'm tempted to start taking this running lark a bit more seriously.

Couldn't agree more Old No 7. It really bugs me when the commentators start banging on like that (even Paula was saying it - but then she was more often than not THE strongest runner in her races). Whilst it may be a fair statement in track racing, the marathon is a completely different kettle of poisson. I genuinely feel to get the best out of yourself in a marathon and to run optimally it needs to be as close to even pacing as poss. Look at Steve, Derek Hawkins, the Aussie lady, Shelley, Partridge - all ran fantastic races and had they gone at quicker paces earlier in the race, they would have suffered beyond belief and finished in a much worse position!

Nice miles TR.

good racing there PP - you're looking in fine fettle.

Tmoth - crikey!

RS - yes there are some proper runners at Leeds, I am nearly in the top 20 current endurance runners there. Nice miles from you too.

Selbs I know it's very hard to estimate re the conditions but what I will say in sheltered parts in that first 17.5 miles I found myself ticking along at sub 5:30 per mile pace vs an average pace across the race of 5:40 with no increase in effort. And I do think you feel the wind more if you're going closer to the limit. I wouldn't have minded that weather too much on a long run although it would have peed me off a bit. Still there's never anything that one can do about the weather so I'm not complaining just feels good that I think there's more to come off because of the shitty weather!


TT - tempting but we're expecting baby RJ no 2 at the beginning of October so not sure me disappearing for the weekend a couple of weeks later would go down too well.

Thanks guys.

It was 7 seconds actually SL 2:28:32 (for 8th place selbs). and yes I did run like a moron last year. I was most upset, but not surprised when you came sauntering past. I'm sure the weather alone was worth a couple of minutes on Sunday and I ran from 10k to the end on my own so no respite from the conditions until the turn, or the benefit of running in a group (if there is any? still not convinced). I'm also carrying a bit of an injury so hopeful I'll be knocking on that 2:25 door at VLM next year. Hope you and Padams can join me, but I wouldn't mind if you cant quite keep hold of me.

I've heard today that folks are going to be ok to get a GFA/champs spot from Edinburgh so top stuff selbs but PO10 wont consider the rankings unless EMF publish a full and comprehensive list of results. Means I may have to look for an autumn marathon after all!

The cake. Corguette and lime. Yes. I know. Corguette and lime. Cake. I was too polite to decline a piece but it was actually, believe it or not, absolutely amazeballs.

poach if there's anyone that has a man suit it's you. Best of luck.

selbs - well done on a cracking run at Edinburgh. I too was chuffed to see you get the time.

One thing that I would check with VMLM as soon as you can though is whether they will accept your time. Edinburgh have decided not to publish a full set of results so it may be difficult to verify your time.

Nice to see you Lev and well done on a very solid time given the issues.

TT - as I've said elsewhere, nice racing.
